Director Colin Trevorrow celebrated the first day of Autumn with a special photo that could hint at some exciting events to come in Jurassic World. A sequel to the original Jurassic Park films, Jurassic World and takes place 22 years after the events of the first movie, which makes this photo from Trevorrow all the more magical. Check out what exactly was teased after the jump.
The picture in question was simply captioned “Autumn” and depicted the remains of a destroyed “East Dock” sign from the original Jurassic Park theme park. This specific sign is of particular importance as it resembles the sign Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) knocks over with his jeep before he is killed by a dinosaur. The sign appears to have remained untouched roughly 22 years later and is covered in a mass of dried leaves.
From what we know, Jurassic World will return to the original island of Isla Nublar in a new and improved dinosaur theme park. So it’s interesting that this general location has essentially stayed completely intact during this time.
It’s possible that the photo could be hinting at a revisit to the scene of the crime where Dennis Nedry attempted to betray Dr. John Hammond many years ago. If this “East Dock” sign is the one and the same, it also tells us that despite the theme park still being built on Isla Nublar, for whatever reason, this area of the island has been abandoned.
Was this area simply roped off because of the bad press garnered from the events that took place, beforehand? Are there more disconcerting reasons as to why this space is condemned? This ambiguous photo raises many questions for moviegoers and Jurassic Park fans alike.
The plot has not been unveiled yet, but Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, BD Wong, and Irrfan Khan.
Jurassic World will be released in theaters on June 12, 2015.
